The Adventures of Paddy the Pelican is one of the first cartoons made for TV in the 1950's, airing on Chicago's WENR-TV.

Due to the low-production budget, it's infamous for its pencil sketch animation, dark backgrounds, looping sequences, and poor lip syncing.

Because of this, it is often mentioned among "the worst cartoons ever".

Update 10/24/16 It appears episodes are on Myspleen in compilation discs called "Worst Cartoons Ever". For now, only names are shown. We are attempting to download the videos.



Only 6 episodes of the series were made. Of those 6, 3 episode names are known, and only 2 are available online.
